Spring Color

(Suzanne Rheinstein)

A Touch of Sunshine
(Thomas Jayne)

Today is the first official day of spring.  Are you celebrating in your home with wonderful color?  

As I'm sure you know, paint is the least expensive way to completely change the feeling of a room.  Imagine the foyer above in a decadent oxblood?

How do you plan to bring in the spring?

Happy Spring to everyone!  
I hope you have a colorful weekend!
Speaking of positive spring color, our sweet friend Hopsy...
A very big thank you goes out to Hopsy of Monograms and Manicures.  She hosted a great give-a-way several months ago featuring Toss Designs.  I was the lucky winner of the Balboa Weekender.  It is so bright and colorful.  I am quite impressed with just how spacious it is too.  She is such a kind person.  I do hope that if you aren't familiar with her blog, you'll go over and say, "hello".    


  1. Love the bed topper and always dreamed about a custom wall mural like this. Hopsy is darling isn't she!

  2. Love the entrance hall. Colour is the very definition of Spring.

  3. Love that bedroom! Gorgeous!! Yay for you for winning Hopsy's giveaway!! She's such a doll! xoxo

  4. What an inspiring post! I love poison green against dark wood furniture. In fact all of what you have posted is beautiful.Love the bag you won as well - really spring-y! I didn't even realise it ws the first day of spring today but somehow ended up 'spring cleaning' for about 5 hours! I must be in tune with nature or something :)

  5. Spring is infectious... had to completely redesign my blog because the old scheme screamed 'winter'! Thanks for celebrating it too! Love the pics -- Hollyhock is one of my favorites whenever I'm in LA -- I'm a huge Suzanne Rheinstein fan!

  6. Love, Love that bedroom! I could cozy up in there with no problem!


  7. That bedroom has some serious inspiration ideas in it! Happy spring!

  8. I love Toss. I keep looking for that pattern at TJ Maxx but nothing yet!

  9. I'm a spring girl through and through. My b-day is in the spring and I have spring coloring ~ like the seasonal color charting.

    Love the Suzanne Reinstein room with the gorgeous spring colors.

    Congratulations on winning the Balboa Weekender that the adorable Hopsy gave away.
